Haven is committed to reducing the incidence and minimizing the impact of domestic abuse on families and communities. It provides emergency shelter, crisis intervention, on-going support, referrals, and education. Its services are for any person impacted by domestic violence, sex trafficking, or stalking. It meets survivors where they are, and offers compassionate support as they move towards a life free from violence. Haven envisions a community knowledgeable about domestic abuse, fully engaged and committed to the safety and well-being of its members.

Haven began serving survivors in 1979. Over the last four decades, Haven has worked to both provide safe intervention for survivors of domestic violence, as well as to prevent future violence from occurring. It believes increased awareness through community education can make everyone an ally in ending domestic violence.

Haven is the only nonprofit serving survivors of domestic violence, sex trafficking, and stalking in Gallatin County. Its approach makes it unique — everything it does is deeply and genuinely rooted in empowerment. Haven connects survivors to all the resources and help they need, while trusting that they should be the one to decide what’s best for their own journey.

In the last year Haven has served 1,014 survivors: 354 received legal advocacy, 24 attended support groups, 50 received counseling, and 118 men, women, and children received shelter. Haven’s 24-hour support line has answered 5,103 calls for survivors, families, and community members. Haven’s life-saving work is only made possible through the generous support of the community.

Haven approaches each person as a complex individual with their own unique background, worldview, and challenges and opportunities. It is committed to working with any and all survivors of domestic violence. Haven is taking active steps towards increasing equity among staff through an equity compensation analysis and calculator. This process will result in staff members being fairly compensated for not only the education and professional experience they bring to their role, but also their lived experiences and their exposure to vicarious trauma in their role at Haven.

A bachelor's degree is required for this position as is at least eight years of experience in nonprofit or private sector management, with an emphasis on fundraising. All applications must be accompanied by a cover letter and résumé. Cover letters should be responsive to the mission and vision of Haven as well as the responsibilities and qualifications presented in the prospectus.
